Ian McShane Net Worth $15 Million

Ian  was born to Irene and Harry McShane, a Scottish professional soccer player. He spent his childhood in Davyhulme, Manchester, where he matriculated from Stretford Grammar School, after which he enrolled at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art. While in college, he became a member of the National Youth Theatre.

Ian’s professional acting career began with his debut appearance in the 1962 film “The Wild And The Willing”, playing Harry Brown, which was followed by a few minor roles in TV series, such as “First Night” (1963), “The Sullivan Brothers” (1964), and “Redcap” in the same year. In 1967 he was chosen to play Heathcliff in the TV series “Wuthering Heights”, and before 1970 he also appeared in such  TV and film titles as “Wuthering Heights” (1967) and “Battle Of Britain” (1969), among others, all of which established his net worth.

During the next decade, Ian landed such roles as Wolfe Lissner in the film “Villain” (1971), Judas Iscariot in the TV mini-series “Jesus Of Nazareth” (1977), Benjamin Disraeli in the TV series “Disraeli: Portrait Of A Romantic” (1978), and as Fouquet in the film “The Fifth Musketeer” (1979), increasing further his net worth.

Ian’s net worth as well as popularity grew immensely during the next decade, as he was chosen for the title role in the TV series “Lovejoy” (1986-1994), and parallel with filming this, he also appeared in such productions as “War And Remembrance” (1988-1989), “Wonderworks: Young Charlie Chaplin” (1989), and in the Dick Francis film series. After the filming of “Lovejoy” ended, Ian featured in the film “Sexy Beast” directed by Jonathan Glazer, which increased his fortune as well.

With the beginning of the 2000s, Ian became more  popular, which earned him roles in such film and TV titles as “Deadwood” (2004-2006) starring in the role of Al Swearengen, “The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising” (2007) portraying Merriman Lyon, and “44 Inch Chest” (2009) as Meredith. In 2011, he was selected for the role of Blackbeard in Rob Marshall’s adventure fantasy film “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” alongside such stars as Johnny Depp and Penélope Cruz. In the following year, Ian was cast in the film “Snow White And The Huntsman”, playing alongside Kristen Stewart, and Charlize Theron. In the following years, he landed parts in “American Horror Story” (2012), “Jack The Giant Slayer” (2013), and “Hercules” (2014), increasing further his wealth.

Most recently, Ian has starred in the TV series “Ray Donovan” (2015), “The Hollow Point” (2016), and in an episode of the HBO series “Game Of Thrones” (2016), and for roles in “Pottersville” and “Jawbone”, both  released in 2016, and he is currently filming the TV series “American Gods” (2017). His net worth is certainly still rising.

In addition, Ian has also been in demand as a voice actor, lending his voice to characters in such productions as “Shrek The Third” (2007), “Kung Fu Panda” (2008), “SpongeBob SquarePants” (2008), and in the following year in the film “Caroline”, all of which contributed to his fortune.

Regarding his personal life, Ian McShane has been married to Gwen Humble since 1980. Previously, he was married to Suzan Farmer from 1964 to 1968, and later he married Ruth V. Post (1968-1977), with whom he has two children. His current residence is in the Venice beach area of Los Angeles, California.

1Jet black hair
2Calm, rasping voice
3Frequently plays cold-eyed, calculating villains
1I became a high-functioning alcoholic and drug taker. I would always remember my lines, and always be on time, but some of the films I was in then I have no recollection of having done them.
2My wife is American, though, and she's been my wife for 36 years, and I do love the place. When I see all this Trump bullshit, all his bombast and stupidity, I think that's not the America I know.
3That was a volatile time in my life. Lunacy. Off the rails for a year and a half. Sylvia was a great girl, but we were hardly seeing each other towards the end, because we were always away filming in different parts of the world and then, when we did meet, we would fight.
4Giving up smoking was the hardest one of all - tougher than alcohol and drugs. I was smoking at work out of boredom a lot of the time. You'd finish filming a scene and have three hours until the next one. I always say that movies pay me to wait around - and I do the acting for free.
5The bad boy: always more fun. It's funny. When you're in your early 20s, you go ahead and do everything. And it's very hard to judge yourself. It's like when you're in drama school, and you're playing a 60-year-old in Russian plays, and you get criticized, and you say, 'What the hell, I'm an 18-year-old trying to be a 60-year-old Russian?' But the bad boy, I had a knack for it from the start.
1Gave up drinking in 1988.
2Quit smoking in 2011.
3Lives in the Venice beach area of Los Angeles.
4His father was Scottish. His mother, who was English-born, was of Irish and English ancestry.
5His favorite shows are Family Guy (1999) and The Simpsons (1989). In a 2010 interview he remarked "They tell you what's happening in the world. Best shows on television".
6An appealing romantic lead in several hit movies of the sixties, by the late seventies he had progressed to character parts, such as the title roles in the BBC Disraeli: Portrait of a Romantic (1978) and the very popular TV series Lovejoy (1986).
7After over 40 years in the business, he has finally struck it big internationally with his performance as the macho, gruffly-complex villain, Al Swearengen, on the HBO series, Deadwood (2004).
8Grew up in Manchester.
9Father was Harry McShane, the Manchester United footballer.
10Children: Kate McShane (b. 1971), Morgan McShane (b. 1975).
